WINDSOR, Ontario – Last month, Bob Dechert, a senior aide to Canada's foreign minister, was dispatched to Detroit with an important diplomatic mission: to stop a highly-annoying noise.
The so-called Windsor hum, described as a low-frequency rumbling sound, has rattled windows and knocked objects off shelves in this border community just across the Detroit River from the Motor City. Locals have said it sounds like a large diesel truck idling, a loud boom box or the bass vocals of Barry White.
Residents in Windsor, Ontario, have blamed the hum for causing illness, whipping dogs into frenzies, keeping cats housebound and sending goldfish to the surface in backyard ponds. Many have resorted to switching on their furnace fan all season to drown out the noise.
“The Windsor hum is having a negative effect on the day-to-day lives of Windsor residents,” Baird said in a statement.
“We are prepared to collaborate with stakeholders and other levels of government to identify the source of the problem so that potential mitigation measures can be designed and implemented.”
The hum has become a significant annoyance in the border city, with an estimated 22,000 residents taking part in a telephone forum held by the city in February.
Jim Bradley, Ontario’s environment minister, sent letters to municipal, state and federal officials in the United States late last month, asking them to take action on the problem. The ministry has received close to 500 complaints about the noise, Bradley said.

It seems to have the exact same description as many other sky noises. I doubt its a weapon of any kind.

Well you didn't think we were going to let Canada get away with what they did to the white house do you? There's one thing Americans know how to do and that's hold a grudge.
